Wolfe demanded during dying

Emily Dickinson

 Next Poem          


Wolfe demanded during dying
"Which obtain the Day"?
"General, the British"—"Easy"
Answered Wolfe "to die"

Montcalm, his opposing Spirit
Rendered with a smile
"Sweet" said he "my own Surrender
Liberty's beguile"

    Wow, this poem really hit me. It's super deep thinking about death and liberty like that. Makes you appreciate life and freedom a lot more. Def gonna reference it in my homework assignment tonight.
